Destroy armor is a mage monster spell used in NetHack.


This spell will target a piece of worn armor, using a weighted random selection, and destroy it. The process is the same as for an uncursed scroll of destroy armor. Magic resistance completely nullifies the effects of this spell. Destroy armor tends to be cast primarily by liches and golden nagas.
